** This is within the realm of Sheogorath, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[MadGod Madness]]. One of his favorite games is making mortals or even other Daedra look like idiots. The lesson is usually "don't underestimate/bargain with/upset/stand near/shirk worship of Sheogorath", but it can be kinder ("there's always room for creativity") or more cruel ("there's madness within us all"), [[MoodSwinger depending on his whims]]...

* Randal Patrick [=McMurphy=] from ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest''. The novel's author, Ken Kesey, was something of a real-life example as well: he helped kick-start the hippie movement and drove around America in a painted bus handing out hallucinogens like candy. Then when he was on the run from the police he fled to Mexico and later went back over the border on horseback dressed as a cowboy.

* Myth/ClassicalMythology
* The Myth/ClassicalMythology has various examples, the main one being Hermes. But then you've got Autolycus, [[ReallyGetsAround one of his multiple sons]], who is well known [[LamarckWasRight for having inherited his father's arts of theft and trickery]]. And, of course, there's [[TheSmartGuy Odysseus]], who happens to be Autolycus grandson, although he uses his skills for [[BlackandGrayMorality hypothetically]] better purposes.

* Franchise/{{Batman}} has ComicBook/TheJoker and The Riddler. The Joker often spends just as much time performing pranks and other petty things as much as killing people. The Riddler has a compulsion to make complicated puzzles for [[ItAmusedMe his own amusement]].

* Loki, Marvel's version of the Norse God of Mischief and Lies. Varies from out-and-out villain to anti-hero, depending on the writer and the incarnation (for example, de-aged Loki is a lot less malevolent than his previous, older self).

* Br'er Rabbit from ''Film/SongOfTheSouth'' and the original stories. In [[WaltDisney Disney's]] adaptation, and all adaptations since then, the pronunciation has been "''brayer''", as if it were a mispronunciation of "brier", when, in actuality, "Br'er" is supposed to be pronounced as "bruh", meaning "Brother". This character is deconstructed in Creator/RalphBakshi's ''WesternAnimation/{{Coonskin}}'', where "Br'er" is correctly pronounced.

** The Coyote plays this role in the legends of the Southwest Native American groups. Depending on the story, he ranges from simply being a clever animal to an outright god.

** The Coyote plays this role in the legends of the Southwest Native American groups. Depending on the story, he ranges from simply being a clever animal to an outright god.god[[note]]In many of the Western cultures, he's one of the primary creator gods, though his role varies from being "''the'' main one" to "the one who screwed it up for everyone else"[[/note]]. Personality-wise, he ranges from an unreliable-but-friendly ally to humanity, to a too-clever-by-half {{Jerkass}}-{{ButtMonkey}} who teaches people how to behave by negative example, to the personification of chaos, definitely powerful, but ''nobody's'' friend.



** Tezcatlipoca subverts the archetype in that he was at the same time an authority figure, and a very important one at that. The only times he was really trickster-ish where mainly when he wanted to annoy his brother, Quetzalcoatl.

** He was definitely at the far "god of chaos" end of the trickster archetype. [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Alternative names]] for him translate approximately to things like "he to whom we are his slaves", "change through violence" (likely a reference to revolution), and "enemy of both sides".
